sources are out to punish justices for rulings the partisans don't like. take iowa as the prime example. the state supreme court there is considered one of the fairest and most impartial in the country. justices are chosen on merit, through a non-partisan nominating process long respected by both parties. but two years ago, iowa conservatives knocked off the bench three state supreme court justices who were part of a unanimous decision upholding same sex marriage on constitutional grounds. now those conservatives are trying to remove a fourth justice who had joined in that decision. >>> iowa voters made history last election holding activist supreme court judges accountable for ignoring our will and imposing gay marriage. now we must hold david wiggins accountable for redefining marriage and legislating from the bench. only 63% of his peers support his retention. in school, that's a d minus. if david wiggins can impose his liberal values and redefine marriage, many of our iowa traditions and rights are at risk. hold david wiggins accountable. vote no on wiggins. >> although that ad refe

story now on the growing role of money in the election of judges. in iowa, the governor appoints a supreme court justice and then, later, the people vote on whether to retain that justice. in 2010, a group of christian conservatives organized a million-dollar ad campaign targeting three supreme court justices who had voted to allow same-sex marriage. the lobbyists won, raising the question, in iowa and elsewhere. if justices have to depend on campaign donations, can they remain fair and impartial in court? >> reporter: this was the family leadership summit in august on the outskirts of des moines, iowa. for christian conservatives from throughout the state and from as far away as alaska, this was the place to be. the hot subject of this day was judicial restraint. listen to former republican presidential candidate rick santorum. >> we need to make it very, very clear what our values are, and that they are not to have elitist judges rule from on high and tell us that we have to fundamentally change who we are as americans, and that's what this is about. >> reporter: what this was ab

? iowa's six electoral votes could decide who sits in the oval office january 20th. right now the president has a slim two-point lead if you average the recent state polls and the register's endorsement could give romney the boost he needs. it validates romney there, not to mention this is the time the register endorsed a republican in 40 years, the last one was richard nixon in 1972. we know how it turned out. mitt romney is heading to dann port this evening. the president is sending the first lady there today and joe biden on thursday. i want to put up a quote from my friend rory cooper who said "the des moines register" enl dorised carter, mondale, gore and couldn't endorse another four years of obama. wow. you see folks on the left dismissing the value of this. on the right they'll make a big deal about it. i came upon a fun study from 2008. brown university economists found that when moderate papers endorse they're seen as mort credible. when a partisan paper does it, not so much. when the chicago sun times and "denver post" endorsed kerry and bush, the study found 3% of read

vote in iowa and ohio and other states and get your town out, both campaigns are focused on early votes if nothing else to diminish the third debate or another turn of events. the campaign in chicago thinks they can't lose because they have more pathways to the battleground states. what we are seeing is romney is putting more options on the table for him because he may have more battle ground states, more paths to 270 electoral votes than obama campaign thought he who is. that is an option for him now with the new polls showing he is improving in ways that were not anticipated. everyone, i think, always did think this would be close. >>shepard: everyone on this air said it from the beginning. i wonder if there is an enormous shift in resources because of the new paths to the electoral count. >>guest: by putting more states in play both sides have to devote resources they may not have anticipated such as in wisconsin. there is a lot of money that both sides have. we will know after the next few days and probably after the next debate who is putting money in, in the final cut. the s
